What scale are you using for your banjo break at the end of death trip (studio bad livers) g minor pentatonic?
well just transcribe the whole thing and you'll see. i don't really think in terms of "modes" too much but i'd say it's more like i'm playing in Bb over G sort of. there's some chromaticism too. but if you just write out the whole thing and get every note, you'll see exactly what i'm doing. you are thinking right because it is sort of dorian, however, i never think of pentatonics really. one of my early teachers said "anyone that teaches pentatonics should be shot". he was a bit harsh on that, but the point is well taken.
Are you going to be at the string summit this year?Danny Barnes responded on 03/11/2015 Next question
I was watching some of your youtube videos and was pretty amazed at how well you play claw hammer and three finger banjo. Do you prefer one over the other?Danny Barnes responded on 03/11/2015
